Looking for a great vacation spot? We recently visited Panama City Beach and fell in love! It’s beautiful beaches and many attractions are perfect for family vacations! It’s about 7 hours driving distance from southwest Florida- perfect for a “stay-cation” idea on your next vacation.
During our stay in Panama City Beach our “home away from home” was the Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort. It is gorgeous! Each room at this resort is a suite with a full kitchen, washer and dryer, living room, dining room, bedrooms, and a balcony overlooking the ocean!
Here is a little more about our stay at Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort:
Why Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort?
We absolutely loved our visit at Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort. It’s perfectly located in Panama City Beach near shopping, attractions, restaurants and more! But who wants to leave the resort when it’s this fun, am I right?! There is so much to do without ever moving your vehicle. We spent a ton of time at the pool with the kids. It was fun and relaxing- the perfect way to spend my vacation. There is a restaurant, a Starbucks, and a convenience store right in the middle of the resort.
We had a one bedroom suite and oh my word– It was amazing. I truly believe this is the way to go when traveling with a family. It’s so roomy! It has a master bedroom with a king size bed and bath that are HUGE. Plus our bedroom overlooked the ocean so I woke up every morning, opened the curtains and saw the waves hitting the beach. Paradise!
It has a living room, dining room, flat screen TV, and a washing machine and dryer. It also has a kitchen with a stove, microwave, refrigerator and all the appliances you need to cook during your stay- including a coffee maker with regular and decaf coffee!
We had a private balcony that overlooked the pool and the beach. What a great way to drink your coffee in the morning…total relaxation.
I cannot say enough about the pools at Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort. There are also several hot tub options. If you ask Maggie what her favorite part of our vacation was she will tell you, “the hot tubs!”
They also had a children’s splash pad area that was really fun for the kids to run around in. It was gated (which I love!) and there was a lot of space for the kids to run in the water.
Oceans Bar & Grill
We got the opportunity to eat dinner at Oceans Bar & Grill right on Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort property, and we loved it. First of all, you don’t even have to leave the parking lot. Just walk over for your meal- which is great for vacationers! The food was delicious. They have SO many options for adults and kids.
Their kid’s meal was full of great options and every kid’s meal comes with a free drink in a fun light-up cup. That was a big hit with the kids!
They serve lunch and dinner, but also have snack and room service options! It’s located at the main pool.
The price is my favorite part. I am very aware of my family’s budget, so when we were deciding on our “stay-cation” in Florida we were thrilled to see that the prices were so reasonable at Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort. Our one bedroom suite was under $300 a night! A special thanks to the resort for comping our room on our trip!
Overall, we absolutely loved Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort. We will be back! We spent some of our time at the beach and the great attractions around town, but the great thing about the resort is we could go back and rest and not stress about spending all day in one place. It was marvelous. Best stay-cation ever!
